A notorious crime figure, Angelo Musitano, was shot dead in a drive-by attack outside his home in Waterdown north of Burlington Tuesday. Musitano, 39, was near death inside of his pickup truck on Chesapeake Drive when found. He was pronounced at hospital. Angelo and his brother Pat were charged in the 1997 murder of Hamilton mob boss Johnny “Pops” Papalia. They also accepted a plea bargain of conspiracy to commit murder in the shooting death of Niagara crime boss Carmen Barillaro the same year.
